if there is a chance to put this big deal back together that he and speaker boehner were very close to having this deal last week, that in many ways this speech was almost a post-mortem, almost setting up the blame game for the fact that no big deal is going to happen and no matter what happens here at the end of the day the debt ceiling is probably going to go up, nobody is going to be happy about the deal. i can tell you this, ann, i had a bunch of democrats who said to me would have been a good speech to give two weeks ago. >> i know that he calls republican activism, so much so that we hear capitol hill websites were crashing last night because so many people were trying to e-mail representatives. it sounds like he spooked main street. will he also speak wall street? >> no, wall street is calm. the markets are looking good today. we had a blip down in the indicators from 9:05 and 9:20, then i came right back. nobody is buying the panic or skyrocketing interest rates scenario. >> that said, hedge funds are prepare for a default. >> there's a possibility that we could default. it will be short term.
